What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: January 2, 2021
I have been playing golf since I was 11 years old. Grew up in Chicago, played on the high school and college golf teams. Moved to California in 1970. I play a lot of golf, average about 350 rounds a year. The only thing that keeps me off the course is frost. I'll play in rain, wind, fog, heat/cold, etc. I play super early every day because I hate waiting around.
As I age, it has become difficult to accept that I can no longer play to the level I once played too. While I still love the game, I have tended to isolate myself because I am embarrassed by the deterioration of my skill level. However, I am still on a quest to accomplish my long time goal of shooting my age. Finally on October 3, 2020 at age 72, I was able to accomplish my goal of shooting my age. Shot 71 at Coto de Caza - south course from the blue tees.

Looking to stay reasonably close to home, RSJ fit nicely. Not a whole lot to add to Dave's recent review. I echo what he said about the greens. I have played here a number of times, and the ball did seem to run out more than usual, although they were not all that fast. Overall, the course was in OK condition. Better than the last time I played, so that's a positive. Fairways also had better coverage.
I enjoy playing here occasionally, but don't think I could make a steady diet of this course. If you have not played here recently, I think you would be impressed with the improvement from a couple years ago.» Close

First out on a very cold morning. I checked the internet for weather before I left and it was supposed to be 51 degrees, but when I teed off just prior to 6am, there was frost everywhere. Carts on carts on path until 8 o'clock. (I walked so no impact for me) Sam, in the pro shop said it much colder yesterday.
Greens rolled well and had decent speed. Fairways were frozen. Many more bare areas rhan when I last played here in September. Bunkers were well maintained, which was good, because I found a bunch of them.
Always enjoy playing this course, but this morning was a bit too cold for these old bones. Never did get loose. Otherwise a beautiful clear morning, on a fun golf course.» Close

An absolutely beautiful day tp play golf. A little cool in the morning but warmed up quickly. Not a lot to add to Larry's most recent review which was spot on. Greens held nothing, or maybe it's just me? Generally decent lies in the fairways. No bunkers for me today, but they appeared OK.
I like this course, but it has gotten a bit pricey, so I play here far less than I used to. Love the views. Enjoy the layout and the mix of holes. Staff is always great. Just wish it were closer and cheaper» Close

Our super early as usual on a rather cool morning. (43 degrees) but no frost, so that was a positive. As always, Ruth in the pro shop was a joy deal with. Greens were as quick as I can ever recall. Plus, whoever placed the pins this morning, must have had a bad night, because they were some of the more difficult placements I have seen here. Fairways were very tight, but provided extra roll out, but requires a lot more skill to properly execute the shots, particularly the short shots around the greens.
Bunkers were not yet maintained but did have plenty of sand. However, ALL the tee boxes have been overseeded, so the markers were placed along side, in front of, or behind the tee box. Most were playable, but several were not close to level. Not a problem, just something you have to deal with when maintenance to preformed. Despite having a rather modest maintenance staff, Dos Lagos keeps the course in pretty good shape.» Close

Out in the dark on a drizzly morning. Despite the weather, it was busy. Disappointed in conditions. While the back side was in much better than the front nine, the course was in the worst condition I've seen it. Greens were the best part of the course, but still not as good as I remember them being. Again, the back better than the front. The greens were however very receptive. Many bare spots in the fairways, and even the grass was thin and "stringy" - almost like a weed?
I enjoy this short coourse. I find it interesting, great green complexes and while short on length, it is long on character. I am confident that conditions will return to what I have come to expect from the two Costa Mesa courses.» Close
